About the course

This is an exceptional opportunity for tuition in a very small group by one of the leading recorder players and tutors of our time.  Players are expected to be very good sight readers and to be willing and able to play all sizes of recorder down to great bass or contra.

The timetable is flexible and will vary according to the needs and wishes of those attending, although there are usually 4 one and a half hour sessions each full day.  The early part of each afternoon is free for relaxation, exploring Lyme Regis or informal recorder playing.
